Ventnor Botanic Garden Friends’ Society – Café Botanique
Monday 13th February, 7.00pm
Through most of the Earth’s history, recorded in the rocks on the Isle of Wight, the area has been below sea level, however, there were 2 periods where the land was above sea level with plants and animals flourishing.
This talk by Martyn Hornett, a local palaeontologist, will look at the flora, fauna and environment of the early Cretaceous (about 125 million years ago) when dinosaurs ruled the planet and the late Eocene (about 35 million years ago) when there were now extinct mammals living here.
The talk will be illustrated with art work from John Sibbick, renowned local paleoartist, and we will have fossils from the Island for attendees to hold and view.
Tickets – £8 for VBGFS members & £10 for non-members of VBGFS
